During Friday’s court hearing regarding Alex Jones’ coverage of the Sandy Hook school shooting, a lawyer representing the family of Jesse Lewis told the jury throwing the book at Jones was their opportunity to “take him out.”
The attorney says the most important thing isn’t to just shut down Infowars, but to make sure Alex Jones can’t rebuild his media empire.
As Business Insider reported, “A lawyer representing two Sandy Hook parents told the jury in Alex Jones’ trial to ‘Take him out.’”
“Take him out of this discourse of this misinformation, of this peddling of lies and make sure he can’t do it again,” said attorney Wesley Ball.
“I ask that with your verdict you not only take Alex Jones’ platform away, you make certain he will not rebuild the platform,” he added. “That is punishment. That is deterrence.”
“I hope we never see someone like him again… Alex Jones is patient zero for alternative facts,” the attorney admitted, proving the case is less about the families and more about the establishment’s war on free speech.
